Take Me Out to a Ball Game

I had never been to a baseball game until this semester. And my first outing was kind of ironic: The Philadelphia Phillies were playing against the Miami Marlins, and I’m from Florida. Which meant my Arcadia friends were now my rivals (ha!). The smell of fried food and buttery...

Audrey Suwarno ’21, on Managing Food Allergies in College

"Dairy-free, nut-free, and tomato-free.  To people like me, these listings are vital. As someone who suffers allergies, I have a few opinions about how these issues are addressed on campus. While I acknowledge that efforts are being made, sometimes the online menu posted on...

For Public Transportation Newbies

In Florida, there is plenty of sunshine, heat, and beaches. Some may want to add old people. I never realized until I came here that Florida is looked at as the “Retirement State.” I find it funny that I now see the label come alive when I visit home. What you won’t find, for the...

Crazy Love in a Philly Parade

Masses of exuberant, frenzied fans stood shoulder-to-shoulder for hours. You couldn’t see actual land for what seemed like miles. “Three’s the charm,” they yelled over and over. Sure, the air smelled a bit questionable, but no one seemed to notice or care. This was history. This was Philly’s first...

15 Songs to Get You on Your Study Grind

It is fascinating to me that our personalities determine what kind of music we find suitable for specific tasks. For example, some people put on artists like Drake or Post Malone to go to sleep, while I put on instrumental music that has NO lyrics because words distract me. I never thought of...

A Major Decision Paying Off

It was my first real grown-up decision. I know now I did the right thing, but in the time leading up to changing my major, I felt like a weight was being pushed against my chest and I didn’t have the strength to push it off of me. But I found that I did. It may sound dramatic,...

Healthy Self, Heal Thyself

Here’s a little spoiler for you: This post is going to be about self-love and the importance of it. Yeah, yeah, yeah— it may get a little cheesy at some point, but I promise it’ll make life better. I live in Southwest Florida, which is a little road trip of 19 hours. That’s including...

9 Knight Essentials

I learn by living. I remember coming to orientation at Arcadia with a t-shirt and shorts. I. was. freezing. Then it hit me: This was supposedly summer. And it was only going to get colder! I might as well have been wearing an “I am from Florida” sticky on my forehead. During my first few days...
